i should go to drastic measures
steal enormous works of art
write a piece for 18 violins
it's no march but it's a start

they rub their eyes and wake, distracted
frantically they fill their days
please say I will never be like that, safe
politely dazed
politely crazy
don't you want my love
it's a cloud it's a broken boat
but it might make you laugh a bit easier
I'm like the trees in the midnight parks
oozing danger igniting sparks
we've been left by the viaducts
with the last flame of the universe

i never held a truer notion
then when my dear I held your hand
may your shadow always follow you, through
our getaway plan, our master plan!

don't you want my love?
it's a cloud it's a broken boat
but it might make you laugh a bit easier
I'm like the trees in the midnight parks
oozing danger igniting sparks
we've been left by the viaducts
with the last flame of the universe

    General CommentAnother awesome Slean song. It rises and builds up to the ultimate climax at the 3:23 mark. The song is so full of euphonic energy, which is not something you see in music too often.

    General CommentI love the ending of this song - the little instrumental bit. I saw Sarah and her band play this number live, and the ending totally blew me away, the way how they altered it to a more dramatic rendition. Totally stepped up my liking of this song for me.
